This is the Acherus Deathcharger. Many of you are no doubt familiar with it by now; this is the devil-horned horse that all Death Knights come out of their starting area with, even if it did start as a mere colt when you stole it. There’s a lot to like about the Acherus Deathcharger: it’s pretty cool-looking, it’s a summon rather than a simple mount so it has its own special summoning animation, and it’s a class-exclusive.
It also has a big downside, especially for anyone who plays with the sound on: it screams. Every time you summon it, there’s a hideous otherworldly scream that pierces the soul. It also doesn’t really play nice with capes; due to its high back, Zulfon’s cape pierces its hips and hangs out just above the horse’s tail. Ouch.
So for the past few days, I’ve been taking Zulfon into Stratholme (the old one, not the new one… or the present one, not the one in the past, either way you want to look at it - 6 times, if her Armory statistics are to be believed) to try and farm me up a replacement: the original Deathcharger.
Rivendare’s Deathcharger. Now up to a 1 in 100 chance of dropping!
